Politics: "Please Go Home and Tell Mr. Bush Not to Bomb Us" (reading)

Kelly Hayes-Raitt is in second place in her race for the Assembly. Staged readings of columns she wrote while in Iraq will will be presented in Pacific Palisades on Sunday. It's a great chance to evaluate the candidate first hand.

"Please Go Home and Tell Mr. Bush Not to Bomb Us"
A staged reading of Kelly Hayes-Raitt's dramatic accounts of her two trips to Iraq, will occur Sunday, May 21 at 7:30 pm at the Pacific Palisades Women's Club, 901 Haverford Avenue, Pacific Palisades.

As a member of the Santa Monica Women's Commission, Kelly Hayes-Raitt traveled to Iraq five weeks before the U.S. Pres. Bartlett endorses Kelly, Pres. Bartlett endorses Kelly, too!too!bombings and invasion and returned in July, 2003, just weeks after "mission accomplished." She interviewed dozens of women, children and men about their lives during the first Gulf War, the regime, the economic sanctions and the horrifying "shock and awe" of this current war. Her poignant columns appeared in the Santa Monica Daily Press and are posted with her stirring photos at KellyForAssembly.com.

Kelly's columns were adapted for the stage by Emmy Award-winner and Santa Monica resident Robert Illes ("The Carol Burnett Show") and the show will be directed by Woodland Hills resident Riley Steiner (Page Bowen on "General Hospital"), who recently assisted in the directing of the critically acclaimed "What I Heard About Iraq."

Participating in the reading will be:

Julie Sanford ("Something's Gotta Give," "In Justice," "Scrubs," "Dragnet"); Susan Savage ("Boston Public," "Baywatch," "Cold Case," "Judging Amy"); *Sarah Ripard (originated the role of Kitty DeSouza in Andrew Lloyd Webber's Broadway production of "Bombay Dreams"); Jennifer Capps ("The Lounge" Theatre in Hollywood); Hallie Cooper (from Calabasas High School and a founding member of Staged Souls, a theatre company of high school and college students).
